Recently, when I went to Minnions, on Bodmin Moor,Cornwall, to shoot some landscapes with the old mining ruins, I came across a couple of fields with wild rabbits running around. As soon as they saw me they disappeared instantly back into their burrows. That is , all except this one, who sat in the sunshine and kept a wary eye on me from quite a distance. I had just bought a Sigma 120-400 OS lens, for use in taking photos of warships around Plymouth Sound, and this shot was taken using this.
Thank you for all recent comments and votes,always very much appreciated

A very detailed and crisp shot of the rabbit, captured in such effective side lighting.
